Pils sensor cartridge razor is a little weapon in it's own right:

The Pils sensor razor handle is simply a work of art. It has beautiful lines and and is so precisely machined, it makes shaving with the Sensor cartridge a pleasure and such an accurate experience. It does feel like you're wielding a little weapon against your whiskers.

The usual routine is 2 passes with the DE razor, and then touch ups and the final 3rd pass ATG with the Pils Sensor. Probably the most important thing is the final third pass with a cartridge just saves time in the morning and avoids any chance of mishaps.


When I don't have any time in the morning, I'll use another automatic weapon (ok I know the blasphemy):

Note: the lubricating strip can be snapped back, very handy:

These Hydro 5 blades are from Japan and seem to work better than the different all blue model available in Singapore.

I have the "older brother" and love it. One of my two favorite DE razors of all time.

Joris (Plisson) at Vikim Diffusion still has many Sensor and Fusion razors on their site...maybe they sell better in Europe. Also I have a Feather 3 blade and 2 blade with really nice handles.

At cost of 125 Euro they can keep it, after all we are only looking at a straight piece of stainless steel with a sensor head stuck on, at least the Pils DE as a machined head so you can see where the work and money goes.

For being a cart it looks rather good - but it's still a cart Tongue

Never tried an aftermarket handle for a cartridge razor. It looks nice.

I, too, do two passes with a DE and then use a cartridge for clean-up of tough spots under the jawline. Most of the time I use an Atra; occasionally I use a Trac II.

I actually just bought this because I've always used a Sensor for the third pass going against the grain. I don't know what it is, but the handle changes the Sensor shaves drastically. I know people say, oh you're paying 125 euros for a steel handle. It's not just the handle, it's the part that holds the blade is also well made, probably doesn't make a difference, but it's much better than what you get with the initial purchase. The German blades that they sell on the site are different from the ones made in Brazil. Not that the Brazil made ones are bad, but the German ones seem smoother and the angle on the blades seem to be at slighter different angle. Whatever it is, this is a great razor. I got for 93 euros. The price listed on those razors on the Pils site drops when you place the order. Not sure if it's a glitch, or they're just giving you an instant discount. It takes forever to get delivered though. It took six weeks for mine to get to Miami.

Must be the VAT/ Mehrwertsteuer that is deducted. Sounds like a good deal. It makes sense given the comfort in use and the appreciation for the tool itself.... More power to you Smile
